An event 200 years in the making comes to a completion today. We didn't beat the 1985 record of 7.5 million visitors. This year there were 6.4 million visitors, who consumed 7 million Maß. Only one statistic for beer is available from the olden days... in 1887 more than 71,000 gallons (268,764 Litres) were consumed by 200,000 people or less.
